Gwyneth the Baby Snatcher

A bit of background in the way of explanation here: We have a couple of upright plastic storage units in our exercise/utility room. They have doors on them and shelves inside. One of them contains, among other things, dog & cat food and supplies....including babies. I tend to buy extra babies when they're on clearance and save them for a rainy day, so to speak.

Yesterday LoML and I went out and about on various excursions and were gone for a good part of the day. As we began unloading some groceries upon our return I spotted a cow on the dining room carpet! Okay, not a real cow...but a hound baby that had been stashed away in the afore-mentioned storage.

I backed up into the living room area to inquire of Ms. SneakyDog if she could shed any light on the situation.

She wasn't sure, but thought maybe we'd had a break-in. Now you also need more information on the picture above. Gwyn's a little blurry because she's still moving, playing with the purple gorilla baby (remember Grape Ape from the cartoons?) that was in the storage unit. Also the girafe/ball toy was previously put away. Before you feel too sorry for this poor neglected hound, observe the long red baby, the elk antler, the orange kong-type toy on the right edge of the picture, AND the white thing above it which is the tip of the tail of her fox baby....all of those were already out and available to her!

But what ultimately sent us into hysterics was what you see in the left corner of the top picture. Let's look a little closer:
 What is that UNDER Ms. SneakyDog's bed??? Let's lift the edge of the bed up:
That's right...two more babies (one that still has its tag) stashed away under her bed....for those emergencies that you never see coming--when all infrastructure disintegrates and there are no more stores from which to purchase babies!

Under. Her. Bed.

It's obvious to me Gwyn didn't have enough toys out. If you look up clause 007 in your contract, you will see it clearly says all toys in the home must be available to said dog.

Obviously she didn't want you to get into trouble, so thought it best to take the matter into her own paws:)

Hope you have had a lovely weekend. Sue, Polly & Honey

I am glad that my dogs storage unit is inside a closet, because it would be a real hazard for me if I had that many "babies" scattered throughout our small living room!

Good girl, Gwyneth, for keeping Mom on her toes!

Sue: Thanks for reminding me to keep myself up-to-date on the greyhound contract!

Hazel: She really does keep me on my toes on a regular basis!
